Stir with ice. Serve up or rocks (your choice).
At the intersection of Manhattan and Boulevardier.
Winning recipe, created for a pre-Presidential debate cocktail contest, which asked for red- and blue-colored drinks. Cocktail was featured & served before and during the first 2012 debate at the Chesterfield in Dallas, TX... Credit where it's due, I borrowed Jamie Boudreau's "Golden Ratio".

- A nice, if not earth-shattering, Boulevardiere-style drink. I would make it again. Might be a good intro to bitter cocktails for a red wine drinker.
- Struggle to rate this one - 4 because I really like boulevardier like drinks, but not all that distinctive.
- Luxardo Bitter also works, but is less complex.
